Lacto-fermented ketchup made with honey and fresh whey. Dark honey and spices give it a complex flavor profile. Cooking time is fermenting time. You may omit the whey and use the ketchup right away without fermenting but it will only keep for a few days in the refrigerator. The preservative qualities of fermenting will take 3-5 days to develop. Flavor profile will also deepen.
